EPA sets ‘poison standards’ for power plants?

The New York Times trashes 450 years of toxicology in a single headline.

E.P.A. Sets Poison Standards for Power Plants” was the Times‘ headline this morning for the print edition of its article on the new EPA power plant emissions standards.

There remains no evidence, however, that anything emanating from coal-fired power plant stacks in the U.S. has, is, or will hurt anyone or anything.

As Paracelsus wrote about 450 years ago,

All things are poison, and nothing is without poison; only the dose permits something not to be poisonous.

As power plant emissions are diluted to harmless levels by the time anyone is exposed to them, the Times‘ headline is dramatically incorrect.

  1. Considering that carbon dioxide is used interchangeably with ” pollutant” and that is interchangeable with toxic and poison, and also considering that they’ve been getting away with it to the tune of leading public opinion and infecting “science” being taught in elementary and higher schools, it’s pretty clear that they can and fully intend to do whatever they want about whatever they define as “environmental justice.”

    Here’s a link to Instapundit quoting Havel reminding me of this and the EPA post above. http://www.smalldeadanimals.com/archives/018719.html
    Note in that quote: “banning independent thought becomes the most scientific of world views.” “Because the regime is captive to its own lies, it must falsify everything.” We’re quite far down that road and the Times is pedaling as fast as they can.

  2. The EPA and the Obama administration has begun their staunch position of ignoring all that oppose their agenda, and forcing it upon us. Only a majority in Congress can stop them, and that does not exist due to the Democrat/Socialist majority in the Senate that agrees with them. We may be seeing the beginning of many more harmful actions during the final days of Obama’s reign, until “We the People” are given the opportunity to vote all of these enemies of the Constitution and the country OUT. That is if Obama does not find a way through voter fraud to steal the election. Just what did you think all of those undocumented aliens are here for?
